Martin Espada, poet / locale, locates time & space as being sutured, simply by literary convention of what came before? By linguistic pre-conception, and thus, a corresponding genre-transformative response, poetics?
 
Martin Espada, of anti-colonialist conscious locale, locates text & audience as merely troubled (difficult) unified story?
 
Martin Espada, as solely socio-cultural trajectory grazing against others, and thus, an experiment, experimented on, even here, to uncover a gaping wound, a heady all-nighter on transposed diasporic agency?
 
As to the three charges: 
 
(thrown out)
 
fuera! fuera! fuera!
 
Lyn Hejinian, as merely radical un-clasper of time & space (through text), thus eschewing no geo-political locale at all? (pomo-libre?)
 
L.H., as essentially arbiter of diffracted subjectivity borne of high-modern industrial linguistic subaltern trends, deployed through specially arrayed cultural-aesthetic transmit ions, “poetics?”
 
L.H., as exclusively soviet-futuro triple spy, with covert connections to Bernadette Mayer Expo Legacy House, every word a wire-tap? 
 
As to the three charges:
 
fuera! fuera! fuera!
